About this wikiACH8826.JPGThis is primarily a knowledge, resource, and experience building wiki designed to allow teachers and early childhood educators to remotely share, discuss, probe, and politely challenge our classroom discoveries about spatial learning in Kindergarten in Ontario.The main purpose of the group itself is to co-create and implement a collaborative inquiry focusing on the development of spatial reasoning among 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children through intentional educator interaction strategies during (and which promote) spatial toy play (e.g., wooden unit blocks, magnetic shapes, puzzles, interlocking plastic bricks, Tetris-like games) in the kindergarten classroom which will positively improve student learning and permanently change our teaching practice.
We plan to use this wiki to:
  • Announce, schedule, and discuss events in our news feed at the bottom of this page,

  • Create inquiry projects -- with optional start and end dates -- for topic areas, and,

  • Collect and store our knowledge, experiences, files, and discoveries.
